Matisse has inspired Fineline art students!

Sounds like a title for the newspaper right?!?!?!?  Well, I have to honestly say that these kids in this class have truly invoked the spirit of Matisse and what he was thinking with his move toward Fauvism and his still life paintings!!!!  I left Friday night so incredibly inspired and my soul was definitely singing so loudly that I thought my heart would burst!  I know, I know it sounds sappy and crazy and like, "okay, Julie, that's a little over the top!"  BUT.... what you may not understand is how much happiness a teacher can feel when a lesson truly flows and the results are like these!!!!  These kids keep reminding me how much I love what I do!

My quote for today....

The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.  ~Mark Van Doren  

I'll add to that... for both, the student AND the teacher!!!!
